What is ETIAS Liechtenstein for Canadian citizens?

The ETIAS visa will come into force in November 2023, as part of a European Commission program aimed at strengthening European borders and keeping a digital track on all people travelling to the European Schengen Area. This program was already approved in 2016, after the terrorist attacks that affected some European countries. During the last years, data sharing between European Union countries has been expanded, and this allowed for the creation of the ETIAS visa system, that connects the applications for ETIAS visa with already existing databases.

Once issued, the ETIAS permit will be valid for 3 years, and it will allow multiple entries in Liechtenstein and other countries of the Schengen Area, as long as each trip is shorter than 90 days. To make sure you get your approved ETIAS in time for your trip, it is recommended to apply for ETIAS at least 4 days before the departure date.
